AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) regulate midwives, students together with registered nurses of Australia to ensure that the public relation is protected according to the section of national registration and accreditation scheme (Birks, Davis, Smithson & Cant, 2016). The two chosen registered nurse standards include standard 3 which is “maintains the capability for practice” along with standard 6 which is “provide safe, appropriate and responsive quality nursing practice”.
To start with, standard 3 has been important in the field of nursing because registered nurses are responsible and answerable in making sure that they are safe and have the ability for practice which has made health facilities to improve in their medical services. The standard aims at providing education along with information through the registered nurses to individuals so that they can make decisions and take actions for their well-being (Grace & DRN, 2017). This is achieved via evaluation and promotion of health literacy together with developing and using resources from relevant sources to support positive and informed attitude on health (Dawson-Rose et al., 2016). Retaining the capability for nursing practice encompasses self-management along with reacting when a problem occurs concerning other health practitioner’s capacity for practice. Moreover, these registered nurses are responsible for their professional advancement and also strive in development contribution to the development of other professionals.
Registered nurses recognize learning requirements via critical reflection and work towards inscribing shortage in self-restraint nursing understanding and expertise (Potter, Perry, Stockert & Hall, 2016). Moreover, they show dedication to expanding and keeping expertise and understanding in the nursing specialty through active participation in continuing professional development operations. Lifelong technique for continuing professional establishment of self and other professionals is utilized and a record of continuing professional inauguration operations targeting to have a focus on nursing practice is preserved. The standard allow registered nurses to be answerable to etiquette, decisions, deeds along with tasks inherent in their contribution and for the efforts of others to whom they have assigned obligations. Therefore, registered nurses handle nursing practices according to professional anticipations and the nursing or midwifery codes of ethics (Potter, Perry, Stockert & Hall, 2016). Through this, future nursing practice becomes more effective and the many errors made concurrently become minimal.
In this standard, registered nurses have the role to solicit together with reacting to practice review and response. In this case, they identify personal and acquaintance’s needs for questioning and promoting to preserve health to practice to meet the needs of people. Also, they seek response from patients and colleagues associated with the quality of practice and absorb the response along with establishing attainable professional objectives to continually enhance nursing understanding, expertise together with practice quality (Hewitt, Chreim & Forster, 2017).
The relationship between the standard and the future is that when registered nurses help other health professionals in developing their contribution in the practice it will greatly impact the future nursing practice in that they will have perfected in their areas and avoid any mistakes committed in case of lack of knowledge. Also, people who acquire the health education from the registered nurses will not later depend on health professionals to know their problems but they will be able to know the action to do after a particular issue arises.
In standard 6, Registered Nurses provide safe, appropriate and responsive quality nursing practice to the patients (Moorhead, Johnson, Maas & Swanson, 2018). This nursing practice is being achieved through the use of advanced technology whereby patients are monitored via wireless chips and sensors integrated into the blankets and into the beds to check and report back on the movement and the vital details of the patient. Here, registered nurses distribute, coordinate, and utilize resources which are within their reach to appropriately and responsibly enhance their nursing practice with the help of technology. Moreover, they have a role of demonstrating conduct that professionally upholds the public trust along with practicing reasonable judgment and seeking the correct assistance. They acknowledge, intervene and say near misses or unfortunate incidences that can put the safety of their patient at risk (Archer et al., 2017). Through the acknowledgement, they try to identify together with establishing strategies that will avoid the same mistakes in future which might put their clients at peril.
Through the health literacy evaluations of family members to the patient, Registered Nurses develop and deliver health care messages along with facilitating parenting groups to advance social networks, social work support, and health literacy (Wiener, Weaver, Bell & Sansom-Daly, 2015). The health literacy will help people in future to understand their health and be able to figure out its causes and how they could contribute in handling the problem. Also, families are assisted in identifying the needs of the patient considering their growth and development, health and wellness. Here, registered nurses enable families to give responsive and sensitive parenting, developing parenting capacity and developing protective factors together with building resilience. The standard has been vital since it provides a general safe together with quality nursing practice so that the anticipated objective is met together with the outcome that is responsive to the nursing requirements of an individual.
Registered Nurses explore and challenge the attitude and behaviors of some of the family members belonging to the patient which are not conducive to the health of the patient together with those that can be harmful. By doing this, the patients will be protected from negative reasoning of his family concerning his health which might deteriorate his health even if the medication given is proper. The standard has been essential in the sense that it also engages multidisciplinary teams and community associates to build the social capital of the community along with sustaining and developing the health of the family. Registered nurses contribute to safe and high-quality healthcare by monitoring the status of the patient's well-being, providing education and support to both the patient and the family together with supervising other nursing teams (Carlsson, Carlsson, Prenkert & Svantesson, 2016). Every healthcare facility monitors what their patients encounter daily so that they can be able to evaluate and identify the strategies that can be put in place so that the quality of care they deliver can be improved and even for the good of the future nursing practice (Wang, Kung & Byrd, 2018).
The standard will be related to the future nursing practice in the sense that as the population continues to get older individuals will need dedicated and qualified health professionals to meet the needs of their well-being. Nursing will then be a fundamental role in endorsing well-being along with keeping them well and supporting them during their sickness.
AHPRA registered nurse standards help in the provision of safe, appropriate and responsive quality nursing practice. Registered nurses achieve the safety of their patients by identifying, reporting and correcting near misses. Furthermore, they maintain capability in practice by participating in the development of their colleagues’ contribution and this helps them improve in their practice. These standards protect the well-being of people, health professionals and even the community.
